Computer Concepts - Internet etiquettes
Internet etiquettes are also called as "Netiquette".
Netiquettes are basic rules or techniques which are accepted worldwide. For effective communication through the internet, these are to be mandatorily followed.
Some of the internet etiquettes are as follows −
Messages you send through internet should be short and to the point.
Activate spell check feature in your document to avoid spelling mistakes while typing.
Instead of using a single case (either lower/upper) throughout the entire message, try to use mixed-case. This increases readability.
For example, start with uppercase letters at the beginning of a line and paragraph, write the headings in uppercase letters and body with mixed-case letters.
Always have a hint related to your content as a subject. The subject ought to be a phrase rather than a complete sentence, providing the crux of email.
The mail addresses of the important people who are intended to read the content of email should only be added in CC (carbon copy).
Blind carbon copy
You can go with 'blind carbon copy' option when you are broadcasting the mail, especially among recipients who are unfamiliar.
This avoids recipients from knowing other's email addresses.
Name at the bottom
Include your name at the bottom of every mail or message you sent.
This helps to identify the sender, especially when you multicast or broadcast the message.
Attachments to be small
Keep the attachments small with respect to memory size, as it clogs (block) the recipient's mailbox.
Try to avoid sending files larger than 2 megabytes.
Do not forward unwanted messages
Avoid forwarding unwanted messages as well as the messages that do not belong to you.
Use abbreviations wisely.
As you cannot change anything mail once it is sent, think twice before you hit the send button.
Check whether you have conveyed everything in a formal language before hitting the send button.
